62. PORTRAIT of THE SECOND LORD BALTIMORE (b. 1605, d. 1675), presented by Queen Anne to the city of Annapolis in 1703. Owned by Titian R. Peale, Esq., who attributes it to Vandyck, b. 1599, d. 1641. Extract from the Annals of Annapolis, by David Ridgely. . . . "Queen [Anne] had Sir Godfrey Kneller (b. 1648, d. 1726), the court painter of that day, paint her portrait, and sent it, with the portrait of Cecilius Calvert, 2d Lord Baltimore, proprietary of the province, and founder of the State of Maryland, as a gift to the City of Annapolis, . . . The portrait of Queen Anne disappeared during the Revolution, but that of Lord Baltimore remained in the State House at Annapolis until 1823, where it was found by Charles Wilson Peale, the painter, stowed away in a lumber room, and in a most degraded condition. Mr. Peale . . . offered if they would give it to them, to paint the portraits of six of the Governors of Maryland. . . . His offer was accepted, the portraits were painted and delivered in 1824, . . . He then proceeded to clean [the portrait of Lord Baltimore] and restore it with great care. . . . [P. 10; entry includes a discussion of attribution to either Van Dyck or Kneller. The work was offered for sale and exhibited under heading: "Pictures Loaned to the Museum Expressly for This Exhibition, by Different Persons."]
